Vintage bags in HaarlemThere is this lovely little shop selling vintage bags in Haarlem. Sylvia and I had a great time looking around there. In the past I have bought a few bags of the friendly lady owner, like the grey one in this post. It started with a hobby (of course) and now she buys and sells them. I can be in that shop for a long time, looking at all the gems. This time I came out with the bright green mini bag. View Post

Coffee in Haarlem with MisjaAnything to do with friends is high on my list. Having coffee in Haarlem with Misja on a Saturday morning is just my cup of tea (pun intended). You have seen Misja on my blog several times (like here). She is a photographer who has a Street Style blog about people over 50. Beautiful pictures and a real tribute to men and women over 50. Her blog is : misjab.nl (my link will get you to her English version). She blogs both in Dutch and English. Would be too much hard work for me. View Post

Brocante market in HaarlemHere you see the whole outfit with the bright blue top which I wore in last week’s post. I wore it again to the brocante market in Haarlem with Sylvia of 40+Style. It is an easy outfit. As I get older, I appreciate ease and comfort more and more. Still wearing the high heels and tighter dresses, but I am getting better in saying no to uncomfortable clothes and shoes. View Post

What to weat at the Côte d'AzurThis week part two of What to wear at the Côte d’Azur. We were there for 6 days but I don’t have pictures of every outfit (to give Ron a rest, right?). Visiting Vence and Saint Paul de Vence I wore a trouser outfit with flat shoes. I am not able to walk on high heels sightseeing all day. And to me flat shoes means trousers. My friend Daniela of The Pretty Cute manages to wear skirts and dresses with flat shoes, looking adorable. My flat feet and low instep make a flat shoe less cute. View Post

What to wear at the C ôte d'AzurHere we finally go, my holiday pictures. As I said, we “had” to go on holiday as our parquet floor got sanded and varnished, meaning: not entering the living room for 4 days. Why not turn this hitch into an opportunity and go to the south of France for 6 days? Which left me with the question: what to wear at the Côte d’Azur? I know what you are thinking: “Gosh, is that your “problem”? Must be hard to bare”… Yes, I agree, we are lucky bastards.  View Post
